User Review

Very Romantic … Very Good …

Rating:

I thought City Of Angels was very good. I'm usually very critical towards
movies, but City Of Angels got to me.
Meg Ryan usually plays in Romantic Comedy's (Sleepless in seatle, You've
got
mail) but this time, City Of Angels, admittedly a Romantic film, but it
isn't a comedy. Far from it, it's a drama in all of its aspects. And Meg
Ryan converts to that change very well. She acts great in this movie. It
wasn't an easy part for her, there is a lot of crying involved, and a lot
of
dramatic moments in her characters life.

As goes for Nicolas Cage's character. Oh my god, he plays Seth with such
excellence. Really, i don't think that anyone else could play the part as
great as he did. The way he looks, the way he moves .. so
cool.

Ok the storyline is a little unbeleivable, but you musn't be held back by
that fact. Just beleive the unbeleivable. Just go with the plot, and follow
the movie closely.

I'm not suggesting that City Of Angels is the best in it's sort. It won't
win any oscars, but what i am saying, is that it's a nice movie, with great
actors, great music and a good storyline which rolls towards very emotional
ending.

You won't be dissapointed.
